24 hours in Warsaw

How to show an authentic vibe of a metropolis when you have 24 hours seems to be a real challenge city guides are facing. And what is even more challenging – to demanding guests like the readers of Irmasworld.

Welcome to Warsaw – the city which has been changing enormously in each and every sense of the word.
It is young. Safe. Clean. Modern. Open-minded. And fashionable.

    If your wish is to see a panorama of Warsaw from the 6th floor, while having an extraordinary culinary experience and being surrounded by granite, glass and stainless steel, then must be place on your list is Vitkac. It is definitely much more than a luxurious fashion department store with a food hall upstairs.

    Galilu neoperfumeria, Warsaw

    From the very first moment you will discover that Galilu, is more than a boutique. It is a real temple of one & only cosmetics and perfume from different corners of the world. They will spoil your body in the way which will bring you back earlier than you planned.


    Słodko Słony, is a pure essence of passion & love for sweet & salty. That explains the name of the place. Hard to decide whether to stay downstairs indulging yourself with pastry or to visit upstairs being face to face with homemade pumpkin soup. The interior and smell of freshly baked pasties will take your memories back to your grandma’s house.
    Also notice Lukullus, where the counter of bread & pastries looks like at a jewellery store.

    Home sweet home at Raffles – with homemade ice cream in Lourse? Every day new flavours and an exceptional cocktail bar at night. Elegance and fineness are in the air.


    Redford & Grant, Warsaw

    I am not sure if Sir Norman Foster was aware while designing the Metropolitan building, that he will be sharing his glory with others gentlemen including Brunello Cucinelli, Dior or Valentino who are decorating in exquisite manner the vitrines of Redford & Grant, which as a well-established concept store with a very special taste has earned its trusted clientele.


    Bar Warszawa at the Hotel Warszawa, Warsaw

    Empty seats. Only in the morning when the guests of Hotel Warszawa, are still in their sweet dreams. As it is a place of the same owner as the department Store Vitkac, you will find the most delicious food in their Warszwska and Szóstka Restaurants.


    A shop in Warsaw and flowers everywhere..

    When you look at this facade you can get an impression that it is another flower shop which the city of Warsaw is really well known for. The truth is that here even the boutiques are welcoming their guests with flowers reflecting openness, warmth and cosiness. And this is what Warsaw is about.

    White, Hampton style furniture hidden in nature and that all in the heart of the vibrant city. It’s not another park which Warsaw is also famous for but the picturesque garden of Flaming & Co Restaurant. The flavours will take you from Italy, through France to America. And in the wintertime will the chocolate fondant and cosy interiors make you forget about any cold outside.
